Much of my daughter’s first three

months were spent swaying,

swaddling, swinging, and

shushing her. But when the

sobbing wouldn’t stop, and even

the best baby whisperers didn’t

know what to do, our saving grace was, and still is, the

great outdoors. The moment that first rush of fresh

air touches her chubby cheeks, an immediate sense

of calm overcomes her.

Eight months later and not much has changed.

She still prefers sunshine over screens and birds

over blocks. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, I

suppose. Whenever I get into a “funk ” and can’t figure

out why, nature is my antidote. Whether it’s going for

a hike, bike ride, or simply sitting outside, there’s no

better, or more immediate, mood booster.

Luckily, this month’s magazine focuses on myriad ways to soak up the springtime

sunshine. Freelance writer, photographer, and former wilderness guide,

Ryan Martinez, takes us through some of his favorite alfresco activities—

mountain biking, backpacking, bouldering, etc.—in our cover story,

“Your (Local) Guide to the Great Outdoors” (page 43), with some top

spots to try each adventure, “know before you go” tips, must-have

apps, and more. After perusing the incredible pictures and reading

his recommendations, I definitely feel inspired and more prepared

to explore more.

All that activity means hunger is bound to hit. In “Eat & Drink,” we

share a plethora of places you can post up pre- or post-outing, including

a new Oaxacan eatery in Folsom (page 80) and a woodfired

pizzeria in Roseville that makes both classic and

“Nature has creatively crafted pies (page 82). And if you’re wanting to

dine out of doors, fret not. Starting on page 83, we share all

been for me,

the gear, gadgets, and grub you need for “A Perfect Picnic,”

for as long as including portable recipes that even rookie cooks can

create, six stellar sandwiches available at area eateries,

I remember, a the best places to post up, and other must-pack provisions

(like canned wine, of course!).

source of solace,

One downside of spring in our area is allergies. But

inspiration, don’t let itchy eyes keep you cooped up. In Health &

Wellness (page 66), learn why hay fever strikes and ways

adventure, and to ease the sneeze; then turn to Editor’s Picks (page 60)

for “11 Allergy Season Essentials,” including locally made

delight; a home,

honey, essential oils, and a treatment at Serenity Spa | Soul

a teacher, a Yoga that promises to help heal your sinuses.

According to a study last summer by Scientific

companion.” Reports, “spending at least 120 minutes a week in nature

is associated with good health and well-being,” so put

WHAT’S

YOUR

FAVORITE

FLOWER?

“Hydrangeas are big, colorful, and

make me happy!”—Julie Ryan

“The lotus. It represents

growth, transformation, and

enlightenment!”

—Taylor Gillespie

“Peonies signify a special time of

year and complement any space

with their cabbage-like casual

aesthetic in shades of pink.”

—Kerrie L. Kelly

“Stargazer lilies. I love their vibrant

color and aromatic fragrance;

what’s more, they’re a traditional

gift from my daughter on Mother’s

Day and my birthday.”

—Jami Areia

“Calla lilies, because of their elegance

and simplicity. Although subtle,

they’re strong, influential, and

friendly. Being from New Mexico, I

was always inspired by the works

of Georgia O’Keeffe, and this flower

brings me close to home.”

—Ryan Martinez

“I’m fascinated by tulip magnolias.

They're so striking and gorgeous!

I just wished they didn't disappear

almost immediately after

blooming.”—Tara Harbert

Raising $1,500 for my school music program to use

for purchasing new instruments, sheet music, and

equipment. Over the course of more than a year, I

prepared the 10 hardest pieces I’d learned throughout

my piano career and successfully performed them for

an audience of over 100 in October 2019.

What are your hobbies and involvements in school?

I’m the president and current team captain of the

Science Bowl Club at Vista, and I coach the Science

Bowl Team at Folsom Middle School. I also help run

the Computer Science Club at Vista, which my friends

and I founded this year; and I’m co-president of Vista’s

Robotics Club. I participated in orchestra last year as a

pianist and violinist and still help out. I also play varsity

tennis on the school team.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

Japan. It has such a different culture from the U.S.,

along with a unique history and is one of the leading

countries in terms of developing cutting-edge

technology.

Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN COSMETIC

SURGERY AND PLASTIC

SURGERY?

A: Plastic surgery is a specialty

some doctors enter after

medical school, so they can

offer both reconstructive

surgeries, which return injured

body parts back to normal,

and cosmetic surgeries, which

take normal body parts and

enhance them. An example

of reconstructive surgery

would be the creation of a

new breast for a woman who

had a mastectomy, whereas

cosmetic surgery would be

a woman who had a breast

augmentation to enhance her

shape and appearance. The

same comparisons apply to

the face and rest of the body.

Some plastic surgeons offer

both, whereas some only offer

cosmetic surgery, due to its

profitability and popularity. It’s

important to note that for the

same reasons, many non-plastic

surgeons offer and perform

cosmetic surgery. When

looking for a doctor, do your

research online, gather as much

information as you can, ask

questions, get referrals, and of

course, meet the doctor.

Not OK Project

by

Helping Our Heroes

LINDA HOLDERNESS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

The Not OK Project

has a message for

first responders who

experience trauma

in the line of duty: It’s OK to

not be OK. These heroic men

and women, who may be injured

physically or psychologically

as they aid disaster victims,

are often timid when reaching

out for help due to the stigma

surrounding it and the fear of

appearing weak, says the project’s

founder and president, Eric Meier.

Their bravado is a mask, Meier

says, and the fallout could be

tragic.

First responders—police,

firefighters, correctional officers,

9-1-1 dispatchers, EMTs, anyone

dealing with suffering—commit

suicide at higher rates than the

general population; the data is

likely under-reported, but one

survey estimates as much as

10 times higher. That shouldn’t

be the case, Meier says. First

responders face repeated danger

and witness trauma over the

course of long careers. “The

effect is cumulative,” Meier says.

“The stress keeps piling on and

may not be realized for a few

years. There has to be a release

somewhere.” And that release

sometimes leads to suicide.

The Not OK Project strives

to prevent these suicides by

“bringing first responders out

of the dark” through shared

activities like fishing, camping,

music, sports, even yoga—done

outdoors whenever possible.

According to studies, Meier

says, outdoor and, even better,

26 stylemg.com | APRIL 2020 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


wilderness activity helps traumatized people reconnect with their sense of well-being more

effectively than medication alone. To that end, the group, formed a year ago, is planning its

first three-day retreat at Hume Lake, deep in the Sequoia National Forest, for the weekend of

November 13. “It’s completely off the map up there,” Meier says, “a complete disconnection.

It’s a time to forget about everything, focus on themselves and each other, and have a blast.”

Participants will attend sessions dealing with trauma and get physical with activities like

fishing, hiking, archery, and even axe throwing. In an earlier outing on August 2, the group will

attend a River Cats game honoring first responders.

The idea to form the Not OK Project arose from Meier’s own experiences with trauma.

A deputy with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department for 10 years, he lost friends to

shootings, was involved in the traumatic shootout involving Sacramento police officer, Tara

O’Sullivan, had to be hospitalized “a few

times” and, worst of all, was not able

to save a days-old baby on whom he

performed CPR. “I would continually

tell my wife ‘I’m OK,’” he says, “but I

was not OK.” Meier formed the Not OK

Project after the shooting death of a

law-enforcement colleague “sent me to

a dark place,” he says. There are other

organizations that help first responders

but so far as he knows, the project, which

partners with licensed professionals and

local businesses, is the only organization

in California offering hands-on help for

this vulnerable population and their

families, providing them with specific

activities to tackle PTSD and stress.

If you’re a first responder or family

member dealing with trauma, you can

find more information at notokproject.

com or by calling 916-573-4233. All

communication is confidential.

Spotlight on

Dawn Blanchfield

by HEATHER L. NELSON

Multifaceted artist Dawn Blanchfield has lived in Lincoln the past 15 years, loving the trees

and green open spaces that remind her of childhood in Michigan–where she first began

painting, drawing, and taking classes. The quintessential creative, Blanchfield works in

a variety of mediums: pen and ink, printmaking, acrylics, collage, encaustic, watercolor,

ceramics, fiber, and digital art—most recently adding sewing and jewelry to her arsenal. “I may look

like a mild-mannered mom from the suburbs, but at heart I’m an old punk rocker from Detroit,”

shares Blanchfield. “I love The Clash, David Bowie, all things gritty and dark, bold black and white

graphics of woodcuts, religious iconography, symbolism, folklore, graphic novels, etc.” Narrative in

nature, the honest, authentic artist expresses her emotions and experiences into her diverse works—

whose themes range from skeletons and skulls, to ravens, wolves, life, death, mythology, and more.

HLN: WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

DB: I tend to live in the moment, so what I’m creating

is often influenced by what’s happening in my life. After

some oral surgery last year, I made a graphic ink drawing

of a skull with long teeth. A character from a video game

has shown up in another drawing and a watercolor. The

music I’m listening to also influences what I’m doing.

Lyrics show up in paintings or titles all the time. I also

love going to museums and galleries to see the work of

other artists. When I’m stuck, I always go back to pencil

on paper and draw faces or hands.

7

HLN: YOU’RE A SELF-PROFESSED "TECHNIQUES

ADDICT." HOW SO?

DB: My friends started teasing and calling me the

“Techniques Queen,” because I’m always taking

workshops and classes. I have a bit of a monkey mind

and really do jump from medium to medium. I love

learning new things and have often said I could easily

be a lifelong university student. New skills are just more

tools. Of course, that also means I have many actual

toolboxes full of various art supplies. I’d say I could stop

anytime, but that would be a lie.

8

HLN: WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR

YOUNGER SELF?

DB: Don’t be so quick to say no to things you think you

can’t do. I dismissed the idea of going into commercial/

graphic art in college, because I didn’t think I could work

with deadlines or someone else’s idea—yet I’ve found that

I work really well with a challenge or when forced out of

my comfort zone. I might complain a lot while I’m doing

it but am usually happy with the end result.

9

HLN: WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE

GOALS?

DB: I’ve spent the last year working on

getting my Etsy shop up and running. I’d

like to grow that while continuing to show

work in galleries throughout the area. In the

“dream big or go home” department, I hope

to get my own printing press someday. Maybe

I’ll also learn how to weld.

HIKING

TAKE A WALK ON THE SCENIC SIDE

South Fork American River Trail,

Cronan Ranch

MUST-HAVE APP

All Trails,

provides you

with access info,

mileage, and GPS

tracking so you

know where to

go (and where

you are). The app

also offers social

sharing, ratings,

and allows you to

record your trails.

Hike on!

Monument

Trail

This heavily trafficked, moderate hike leads

to a beautiful waterfall with options to loop

in other trails for added mileage.

4 // South Fork American River Trail

Where: El Dorado Hills

Parking: Skunk Hollow Trailhead, $10

Distance: 12.3 miles

This out-and-back trail weaves around the

edge of the South Fork of the American

River. Turn around at the start of the West

Ridge Trail, or continue on to Cronan Ranch

for an added 5.2 miles (17.5 total)

5 // Echo Lakes Trail

Where: Turn off of Highway 50 on Johnson

Pass Road

Parking: Stay left to arrive at parking

area just beneath Lower Echo Lake

Distance: 5.3 miles

This moderate, 5.3-mile trail takes you

out and back to the lower and upper

Echo Lakes with beautiful mountain views,

including views of Lake Tahoe (head straight

past the “horse path” sign at the beginning

of the trail).

As humans, we need to feel the crisp air

on our face, the soft dirt beneath our feet,

the mystery of unexplored paths that

ramble around rivers and mountaintops.

Thankfully, we live in one of the most

privileged places on the planet to get

our dose of nature, with hundreds of

hiking trails leading to rivers, lakes,

and panoramic views of the amazing

landscape we call home.

5 MUST-TRY TRAILS

1 // Jenkinson Lake Loop Trail

Where: Pollock Pines, south of highway 50

off of the Sly Park exit

Parking: Free parking just outside the gates;

$10 parking fee inside the park

Distance: 7.6-mile loop around Jenkinson

Lake

Lush forests, lakeside beaches, and

abundant wildlife characterize this

moderate hike. There’s very little elevation

gain and multiple access points, which

makes it an ideal hike for the whole family.

A large waterfall marks the approximate

halfway point, just past a nature center

where you’ll learn about the ladybug

migrations, the role of bats in our

ecosystem, and how to spot the nests of the

numerous bald eagles that frequent the

area. Note: This hike can be abbreviated as

needed.

2 // Monument Trail to Monroe Ridge

Where: Coloma

Parking: $8/car

Distance: Monument Trail: .5 miles; Monroe

Ridge: 2.5 miles; total: 3-mile loop

One event here led to the greatest mass

movement in the Western Hemisphere:

the discovery of gold. Monument Trail

meanders through the natural and

historical backdrop of our home and can

be connected to the Monroe Ridge trail for a

longer hike, looping back to the monument.

If you want a moderate, scenic hike and a bit

of history up in the mix, don’t miss this!

3 // Hidden Falls

Where: Hidden Falls Regional Park, Auburn

Parking: $8/full day; $4/half day; must visit

the Hidden Falls Regional Park website for

parking reservations on weekends and

holidays

Distance: 3.2-mile loop

Hidden Falls

FIRST AID

Blisters: Prevention is key. Place

moleskin on any “hot spot” before

the blister forms, and feel that ohso-sweet

relief prior to feeling the

pain! In a bind? Use athletic tape,

Band-Aids, or even a piece of duct

tape because, well…duct tape fixes

everything.

Rattlesnake Bites: We know they’reout

there, and there are a lot of myths

as to what to do. Sorry Billy Crystal,

the old “cut and suck” method is

a no go. According to the National

Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS),

this is what to do:

1. Check the Scene. Don’t create

more victims by getting all riled up.

Look around and make sure it’s safe

to stop to administer first-aid.

2. Stay Calm. Sometimes a rattlesnake

bite is “dry” and may not

mean envenomation. At least remind

yourself of that to help calm you

down, because the calmer you are

the lower your heart rate will be,

meaning you will slow down the flow

of the venom.

3. Immobilize the limb. Avoid compressing

or restricting blood flow.

The old Boy Scout tourniquet is a big

no! Remove any jewelry or restrictive

clothing to allow maximum blood

flow and keep the limb immobile, if

possible.

4. Get to a hospital. If you need to

hike out, do so calmly. Remember:

Keep that heart rate low. Don’t get

hasty and add a twisted ankle to the

dilemma.

5. Document the progression of

symptoms. The clearer you are about

the succession of events, the better

your physician will be able to provide

health care.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

JUST KEEP SPINNING

When it comes to adventure sports,

especially mountain biking, “we have it all

at our fingertips,” says Erin Gorrell, owner

of Folsom Bike. Mountain biking offers

the chance to explore vast areas of our

natural landscape quickly while getting in

shape and having fun. From pure scenic

trails for a mellow ride with the fam, to a

daunting downhill single track to satisfy

the even the boldest adrenaline junkie,

we’ve got you covered..

MUST-HAVE APP

Strava, for

runners and

cyclists allows

you to view and

record trails, join

challenges, follow

users, and monitor

your progress.

4 // Granite Bay

“Granite Bay is probably the best bet for

beginners,” says Gorrell. “There are trails

there that have minimal hills, roots, and

rocks. There are even some ‘whoopdywhoop’

sections where you get some

downhill speed and fun turns without being

too intimidating.” Look up Granite Bay bike

trails on Strava to get started.

5 // Folsom

With more than 50 miles of paved trails,

exploring Folsom’s bike trails is a must. Get

the map at folsom.ca.us.

HOW TO REPAIR A FLAT

(AFTER REMOVING TIRE)

1. Remove all the air from your tire’s

tube

2. Place tire lever between your tire

and the rim

3. Push lever down and attach to

one of the spokes

4. Use other lever to slide around the

tire to remove only one bead from

the rim

5. Remove tube and keep in place,

carefully slide hand through the

inside of the tire to identify debris/

cause of the leak

6. Replace tube; patch if necessary

7. Inflate tire tube enough for tube to

take shape

8. Place tube inside tire above rim,

ensuring it’s properly seated

9. Replace the removed bead on the

rim and ensure it’s properly seated

10. Inflate tube slowly to ensure

proper seating of the bead

11. Continue riding

Granite Arch

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

THE GEAR

Climbing shoes: these are specially

adapted to adhere to the rock

Climbing harness: connects to

the rope (gyms often have special

harnesses for the little ones)

Rope: keeps you from falling to the

ground

Belay device: creates friction on the

rope to prevent a climber from falling

Chalk: keeps those mits dry

Chalk bag: take your chalk with you

CLIMBING VS. BOULDERING

While climbing requires the use of

ropes and belay devices for safety,

bouldering is done without the use

of ropes at much lower heights with

thick pads beneath you, allowing

you to forfeit the need for a belay

device, rope, and harness. You only

need you and some shoes to boulder

(that chalk we recommended earlier;

definitely still recommended) and a

“spotter” to help protect you on the

falls. While the technique is very similar

to climbing, bouldering tends to

be more about power where climbing

is geared more toward endurance.

Both are amazing and worth doing to

become a well-rounded climber.

GRADES OF DIFFICULTY

Climbing routes in the U.S. are symbolized

by “5.”something (e.g., 5.5 all

the way up to 5.15). 5.6 is going to be

much easier than 5.10. For your first

time out, play around between the

5.6-5.9 range.

ROCK CLIMBING

ASCENDING IS TRENDING

While climbing isn’t without its moments of fear, it provides one of the deepest feelings

of accomplishment you can possibly feel. Though an inherently dangerous sport, using

proper safety measures and creating redundant safety checks and backups can largely

eliminate some of them. Always seek proper instruction before heading out and either

start at an indoor climbing gym to meet experienced climbers (more on that below), hire

an AMGA-certified climbing guide, or take a course (our local REI stores offer them) where

you’ll learn proper technique and safety tools.

Bouldering “problems” are symbolized

with a “V”something. V-easy is

the easiest going all the way up to

V16. Play in the V-easy to V2 range

for a first-time outing.

HAVE FUN!

Remember to climb safe, breathe,

enjoy the experience, and don’t be

hard on yourself; it’s about challenging

yourself and having a good time!

Deer Park Creek /

Rocklin Quarry

4 LOCAL CRAGS

WE LOVE

1 // Auburn Quarry

Situated a short 40-minute

hike from Highway 49 and the

North Fork of the American

River, this is a great place for

a beginning lead climber to

practice their lead climbing

skills. There are plenty of

easy to moderate routes

with good protection. We

recommend starting out

on the first wall you see

on your left side as you

approach the crag, known

as “scale wall.” It can also be

accessed from the top to

easily set up a top rope.

Favorite climbs on the “scale

wall:” M+M (5.8), Scooby

Snacks (5.9), and Scale Wall

(5.10)

2 // Sugarloaf

Sitting just across Highway

50 in Kyburz, Sugarloaf

offers traditional and sport

climbing routes on smooth, 350-foot-tall

granite. Park on the south side of Highway

50 and start across the street toward the

phone company building. A steep approach

leads you to Sugarloaf, the most prominent

formation on the hillside. You can’t miss it.

3 // Deer Park Creek/Rocklin Quarry

With over 70 boulder problems ranging

TOP TIPS

1. Use your feet.

The key to becoming

good at climbing

is trusting your

feet and your legs

to push you up the wall, while only

using your arms to keep you on the

wall.

2. Straighten your arms. By keeping

your arms straight and relaxed when

possible, you’ll save much-needed

energy to get you to the top.

3. Keep your hips close. This will help

keep your center of gravity close to

the wall and, more importantly, over

your feet where you should have

most of your weight (see “Tip #1).

4. Climb smarter, not harder. Climbing

is as much a mental activity as it is

physical. If something is feeling really

hard, sit back for a few minutes and

think about the best way to climb up.

It’s more like solving a puzzle than it

is about brute strength.

from V easy to V10, Deer Park Creek

(or the Rocklin Quarry) is a great

option for a quick climbing escape.

Situated alongside Pacific Street,

accessing this old granite quarry is

as easy as it comes. Bring a “crash

pad,” some chalk, and high vibes for

an awesome outing on some short

but quality rocks.

Hop on “The Warm Up” (V0),

“Desperado” (V2), “Nemesis”(V3), and

“Thin Traverse” (V4) for an epic day.

4 // Lover’s Leap

“The leap” is one of the best trad

climbing areas in the state, and

by far the best local spot if you’re

looking for some real exposure.

With the cliffs rising

up to 600 feet, to

say that this is a

bold adventure

is understating it.

There are very few

“sport” routes, mostly

above 5.10+.

If you’re new to trad

climbing, start on

“Hog’s Back,” which

has routes from

5.5 for you to learn

to place gear and

become comfortable

with the systems. For

those who are already

comfortable leading

traditional routes,

some of the classics

are “Bear’s Reach” (5.7),

“Corrugation Corner”

(5.7), “Haystack” (5.8),

and “The Line” (5.9).

MUST-HAVE APP

Mountain Project, Climbers use this app to

share information on climbing areas and how to

access them, route information and grades, and

“beta,” or specific route information helping

climbers find key holds, protection points, and

anchors.

INDOOR

CLIMBING GYMS:

PREPARE FOR

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

The growth of indoor rock

climbing has quickly become

the fastest-growing market

in the fitness industry, and for

good reason. Climbing is an

incredibly complete training

incorporating strength,

flexibility, endurance, and

mental focus into a single

activity. For the first time

in history, a climbing film

won an Oscar for best

documentary (Free Solo) and

the sport is even making its

debut in this year’s Summer

Olympics. Indoor climbing

gyms are the best place to

learn important skills and

meet experienced climbers

before venturing outdoors.

What’s even better, they’re

accessible to the entire

family, even the little ones!

HAY FEVER

Understanding Allergies

by KOURTNEY JASON

Seasonal hay fever, or allergic rhinitis, is extremely

common in the U.S., affecting approximately 10-15%

of the population. “That is somewhere around 30-40

million people,” says Matthew S. Bowdish, MD, FAAAAI,

FACAAI, allergist and immunologist at The Allergy Center at

Sacramento ENT.

Allergic rhinitis is inflammation in the nose when an

immune system overreacts to allergens in the air, explains

Binita Mandal, MD, allergist and immunologist at Dignity

Health Mercy Medical Group. Yet, seasonal hay fever is

just one type of allergy affecting us. “There are several

types of allergies, including environmental, drug,

stinging insect (bees, venoms), foods, and chemicals

causing dermatologic reactions. The most

common of these is seasonal allergies; in the

Sacramento area, tree and grass pollen

season can stretch from February

through June or longer.”

What are the allergic agents

around you? Jennifer Niemeyer,

DAOM, LAc, of The Root

Wellness, says, “People [are

allergic to a] variety of things,

including grasses, dust,

mold, flower pollen, and

tree pollen.” According to

Ali Amirzadeh, MD, allergist

and immunologist at Dignity

Health Mercy Medical

Group, common symptoms

of a seasonal allergy

attack include a runny

and stuffy nose, sneezing,

itchy and red eyes, and

breathing problems such

as wheezing, shortness

of breath, and chest

tightness, while skin

symptoms can include

hives and swelling.

Jamie Brinkley, ND, at Revolutions Naturopathic, further

explains why the body responds with these reactions. “Our

immune system interacts with the environment on a daily basis

assessing if something is ‘self’ or ‘other’ and ‘threat’ or ‘not a threat,’”

she says. “We get allergies when that system has decided this

particle is harmful and an inflammatory response is warranted.”

As allergy season is officially upon us, sufferers can do their

part to help remedy their symptoms. Dr. Bowdish recommends

checking local pollen counts for your specific area. “Just Google

the term ‘pollen count’ with your city name, and you should

be able to get a general idea of what pollens are most active at

that time,” he says. “Some allergy practices will also hand count

pollens throughout the season, which can be the most accurate

pollen counts since they’ll be individualized for your area rather

than based upon weather patterns.”

Troy Scribner, MD, an allergy specialist in the Department

of Allergy & Immunology at Kaiser Permanente Roseville, says

the primary treatments for allergies tend to be medication that

can be obtained easily, including oral antihistamines, such as

diphenhydramine, cetirizine, fexofenadine, and loratadine. “For

individuals who have moderate to severe symptoms or persistent

symptoms, the use of a steroid nasal spray tends to be the most

effective treatment,” he says. “Steroid nasal sprays help to prevent

the inflammation that leads to allergy symptoms and work best

when used consistently. Both the steroid nasal sprays and the

antihistamines can be used together for better results.”

Dr. Brinkley suggests eating a low-histamine diet during the

worst of your allergy season, which “includes a diet rich in fresh

meat and freshly caught fish; non-citrus fruits; eggs; glutenfree

grains, such as quinoa and rice; dairy substitutes, such as

coconut milk and almond milk; fresh vegetables (except tomatoes,

avocados, spinach, and eggplant); and cooking oils, such as olive

oil,” she says. “There are many herbs and supplements that can be

helpful during allergy season, too. My current favorite is freezedried

stinging nettle leaf.” She also suggests allergy sufferers use

a HEPA air filter in their bedroom when they sleep; shower at

night so that outdoor pollen is removed before it can deposit

into your bed; and use a daily sinus rinses or neti pot with

saline to help remove allergens from nasal passages and

keep sinuses clear.

Another way to treat allergies is with allergenspecific

immunotherapy (SIT), Dr. Bowdish says.

“Immunotherapy changes the body’s immune system

by toning down the allergic response over time and

better controlling the overactive inflammatory

pathways,” he says. “Immunotherapy can be given

either via a subcutaneous injection or with

sublingual tablets or drops. The limitation with

immunotherapy is that it takes several months

before the treatment protocol kicks in.”

If you require multiple treatments to get relief, there

may be additional treatment options, including some that are

more long-term. “Talk to your doctor to discuss a plan that will

work best for you,” Dr. Scribner says.

Party Hardy

The Ultimate Shed Shindig

by KERRIE L. KELLY

We've all heard of parties on patios, barbecues in backyards, and

open-air fiestas, but what about shed shindigs? A little party

tip: The outdoor shed is the perfect place to house smaller

celebrations. With rising real estate prices and space in some

cities a treasured commodity, the backyard shed is a hidden space just waiting

to be utilized. Whether it’s a compact man cave for watching the big game in, or

a Sunday afternoon tea spot, the shed is a blank canvas just waiting to be used.

Hang décor, add tables and seating, and invite your guests to take a seat and enjoy

your cool and contemporary party place.

BEFORE BREAKING GROUND

The beauty of backyard sheds is their

ability to add more living space in a

quick construction time frame or easy

prefab build. First, consult your local

county, as many have requirements for

what can be allowed square-footage

wise without a permit and how far away

it should be placed from the property

line. Prefabricated sheds are great

options for less hassle, less construction

time, and for those wanting a quick

addition to their backyard without the

need for in-depth professional help.

For homeowners looking to add a

custom space that’s fit specifically for

their needs, a custom shed is an ideal

choice, where curated finishes, layouts,

and unique applications like hidden

storage or a kitchenette can all be added.

No matter what, be sure to do your

homework on requirements before

getting started.

CELEBRATE IN STYLE

What’s the point of having an

entertaining shed without some festive

décor? Your new space is the perfect

excuse for getting some exciting items

that show off your favorite trends and

shades. It’s also a great way to have fun

with those patterned pillows or funky

pieces of art you might not have room

for in your main living spaces. A fun

bar cart is a compact way to move the

party indoors or out, while a charming

pendant or chandelier hung over a small

seating area is a sure way to have your

guests in awe. A shed is also a perfect

candidate for space-saving furniture:

think upholstery with a hidden nook for

stowing away winter throws, chests that

can be used as both storage and bench

seating, a bar cabinet that doubles as a

bar and for holding festive dishware, and

open-mounted shelving to store all your

entertaining needs.

BRING SOME “AWE” TO THE OUTSIDE

Use your new shed as a way to show

off your unique style! Whether your

prefabricated shed is begging for a

bright, bold paint job or your custom

one is in need of a few shutters to round

out the exterior, use it as an extension

of your home and take advantage of

surrounding outdoor space by adding

some fun design elements. A blank wall

is a great place for metal artwork, while

an adjoining patio is ideal for a cute

bistro table or larger entertainment set.

Lastly, don’t forget lighting. String some

market lights overhead or go for solarpowered

staked lighting to surround the

exterior and provide your shed soiree

with proper lighting all night long.

Let’s get the party started! What are you

planning to put into your celebratory

shed?

BY MEGAN WISKUS

Santa Cruz

Spring’s sprung, which means it’s time to avail of longer, light-filled days with a sun and fun-filled

holiday. For those itching to get away without going terribly far away, we have a destination for

you. Read on for our top picks of where to go, stay, and play this season.

IF YOU HAVE TWO DAYS…

NORTH LAKE TAHOE

Kiss those cold weather blues away with a

visit to Lake Tahoe. Regardless if it’s your first

or fiftieth time, the lake and surrounding

scenery always impress. And though winter

and summer beckon travelers looking to

partake in season-specific activities, spring

is equally enticing, thanks to fewer folks,

discounted room rates, and milder temps.

CHECK IN Whether the tots are in tow or

you’re on a romantic getaway, The Ritz-

Carlton, Lake Tahoe, is a prime pick for

luxury lodging. Sited midmountain,

amongst the

slopes of Northstar, this

high-end-without-beinghoity-toity

hotel is the

stuff Tahoe dreams are

made of: floor-to-ceiling

windows with

unobstructed views of

Sierra Nevada’s pine-filled

forest, in-room fireplaces, and easy

access to an array of activities, plus

family-friendly programs like Ritz Kids,

where little ones can discover the

destination via supervised, hands-on arts,

crafts, and adventures.

On-property amenities run the gamut from

fine dining (Manzanita’s lodge-inspired

space with artfully crafted cuisine is a must

for breakfast, lunch, or dinner to slope-side

spa treatments (we recommend “Journey

Through the Forest” or “Tahoe Tree of Life”),

and Marshmology (complimentary s’mores

featuring house-made marshmallows at

the fire pit).

CHECK OUT If you manage to peel

yourself away from the plush

premises, then take advantage of

the resort’s intermountain gondola,

which transports you to the Village at

Northstar for shopping, entertainment,

and dining options aplenty. Speaking of the

latter, you’d be remiss to miss Bourbon

Pub, the village’s newest eatery from

beloved Bay Area restaurateur Michael

Mina. Serving elevated pub grub with a

playful twist (the Double Cheeseburger with

Santa Cruz

Dream Inn

Santa Cruz

Bourbon Pub

Alibi Ale Works

Charlie Hong Kong

American cheese, caramelized and raw

onions, and secret sauce is akin to In-N-Out

but umpteen times better), alongside craft

cocktails and plenty of local brews, it’s a

perfect place to grab a bite noon or night.

Just a stone’s throw away

sits Truckee, which

boasts a bevy

of breweries,

boutiques, and

foodie finds. Stop by

Alibi Ale Works for

an experimental sour

and plate of Thai chicken

nachos, Bespoke for oneof-a-kind,

handmade goods from

independent artisans, and Riverside

Studios to peruse or purchase

works by five locally based artists.

The beauty of a springtime escape

here is, depending on Mother Nature’s

plans, you can take advantage of freshly

fallen snow with a sledding, snowshoe, or

downhill skiing adventure; or bask in the

blue skies and blooming wildflowers by

heading out on a hike (we recommend the

five-mile, heavily trafficked, out-and-back

Five Lakes Trail).

Did You Know?

The water in Lake Tahoe is 99.7% pure,

about the same as distilled water. It’s so

clear that a white dinner plate can be seen

at approximately 70 feet below the surface.

IF YOU HAVE THREE DAYS…

SANTA CRUZ

Cruising into Santa Cruz, you’ll feel your

worries wash away, as the town’s laid-back

beach vibes take over. From catching

waves and killer sunsets, to strolling the

laid-back but still buzzing downtown

district, or exploring the 14-plus state

parks, there’s an adventure for all in this

slice of California paradise.

CHECK IN The aptly named Dream

Inn Santa Cruz is indeed dreamy.

Between the beachfront setting (all

rooms offer oceanfront views),

mid-century modern decor, and

thoughtful amenities, it checks all

the boxes—and more. Light,

bright, and oozing with

comfort, the surfinspired

space is a

breath of fresh ocean

air. Swim in the heated

pool just steps from the

sand, relax in a plush,

pillow-lined cabana bed

(fruit-forward cocktail in hand,

of course), borrow one of the

complimentary bikes, or book a

reservation at Jack O’Neill Restaurant for

a steaming bowl of bouillabaisse or crispy

calamari with a side of live music

(Thursday-Saturday).

CHECK OUT Sure, the beach is always a

sure bet—and with 29 miles of scenic

coastline you’re bound to find one that

floats your boat—but there’s plenty more

Humble Sea Brewery

in store, too. Head into

Midtown for five walkable

blocks brimming with

boutiques, cafés, and eateries (try Charlie

Hong Kong for organic, Asian-inspired

noodle and rice dishes in a funky space);

or Capitola, the Pacific Coast’s oldest

seaside town that’s famed for its pastelsplashed

facades and breezy,

Mediterranean-esque flair.

Pint-sized visitors will go gaga at the

beloved Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk,

which boasts over 40 rides and

attractions, or one of myriad kid-friendly

museums, including the Seymour

Marine Discovery Center where

visitors can touch a friendly shark and

dive into a world of ocean exploration;

while big kids who want to indulge in

an actual pint can avail of a bevy of

microbreweries, including the cool-asthey-come

Humble Sea Brewery.

Did You Know?

Santa Cruz is the birthplace of mainland

surfing. Using boards fashioned from

redwood planks, three Hawaiian princes

showed locals how to hang ten in 1885.

Di Beppe

Fairmont Hotel Vancourver

IF YOU HAVE FOUR DAYS…

VANCOUVER

Is the coast calling? Or maybe the

mountains? When visiting Vancouver, you

can experience both. Our neighbor to the

north is worth introducing yourself to.

Friendly, easy on the eyes, with a spirited

food scene, every time’s a good time

to come to British Columbia’s largest

metropolis. A direct, two-hour flight on

Air Canada means you can start exploring

the bustling seaport city after minimal

travel time. And don’t worry about renting

a car; there’s plenty to do in downtown

proper, and it’s all within walking, biking, or

rideshare distance.

CHECK IN Go big or go home. In this case,

we recommend the former, with a stay at

Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Fresh off a $75

million dollar facelift, the

“Castle in the City” has been

welcoming guests with its

warm hospitality and

opulent

accommodations since

1939. Book a Fairmont

Gold Room for access to

elevated amenities that

Notch8 Restaurant + Bar

Vancouver

include private check-in and entrance to the

Fairmont Gold Lounge, which boasts a

breakfast of champions, afternoon scones

and snacks, evening hors d’oeuvres, and latenight

sweet treats.

After experiencing the top-tier afternoon

tea and decadent dining options at Notch8

Restaurant + Bar and browsing the lobby’s

chic shops (like Louis Vuitton, Dior, and

Omega), you’ll be eager to extend your stay.

CHECK OUT A long weekend means

ample time to explore. Start by hopping on

a mini tugboat ferry to Granville Island

and follow your nose to the indoor public

market that’s filled with a surplus of stalls

selling everything from just-caught

seafood to fresh-made baked goods,

including fan favorite Lee’s Donuts (the

melt-in-your-mouth, hand-cut “honey dip”

is pastry perfection).

Stanley Park is another must.

In addition to the über

impressive Vancouver

Aquarium and nine

towering totem poles,

the 1,000-acre urban oasis

also offers visitors scenic

Minami

Stanley Park

views of the sea, skyline, and mountains

along its 13,123-step “seawall”—the world’s

longest uninterrupted waterfront path that

winds around the park’s perimeter.

When hunger hits, you’re in luck: diverse

dishes made with sustainable ingredients

are at the forefront of almost every meal.

For Japanese food, journey to Minami for

their flame-seared sushi that’s eaten sans

soy sauce; if you’re hankering for housemade

pastas in cozy, eclectic environs, Di

Beppe—”a young restaurant with an old

soul”—is a prime pick (plus, it’s sited next to

Gastown, Vancouver’s oldest, cobblestone

street-studded neighborhood); and when

the craving for modern Canadian cuisine in

a convivial atmosphere comes, Nightingale

is where it’s at (the buttermilk fried chicken

with spiced maple syrup, sumac, and pickles

is worth the trip in itself).

Did You Know?

According to the Mercer Quality of Living

survey, Vancouver is the third most “livable

place in the world,” along with being one of

the cleanest and safest.

Kahlúa Cake

Those of us who have

been fans of Rocklin’s

Mezcalito knew it

wouldn’t be long until

the best little Oaxacan

restaurant in our area

expanded. Fortunately

for Folsomites, you’re about to find out what

Placer County residents have been trying

(unsuccessfully) to keep secret.

Last November, owners Ruben and

Francisco opened a second, much larger

location in Folsom. The menu retains many of

the same dishes diners at the Rocklin locale

love, with a few more welcome additions

(including cochinita pibil, pollo a la crema, and

a prawn picante buritto).

I started with chips and fresh salsa and then

fortified my appetizer craving with their queso

fundido. Soft, gooey, melted Monterey Jack

cheese with slices of roasted pasilla pepper,

caramelized onions, and the kicker: chorizo.

My companion commented (and I was already

Chicken Chilli Relleno

sizing it up) how you could put it in a

tortilla, add an egg, and call it breakfast

(with a Michelada, too...maybe?).

Since I’ve previously reviewed

portions of their menu, I strayed from

my go-to items and tested the chicken

chili relleno. I’m not usually a fan of

things fried in egg batter, but this was a

pleasant surprise. Lightly battered mild

pasilla pepper, shredded chicken, and

some surprise additions of raisins and

almonds (Oaxacan-style) in a tomato

broth resulted in a definite upgrade to

the typical chili-cheese rendition and

was good enough to make an egg batter

convert out of me.

I just happened to be craving a

savory bowl of soup when I spotted the

sopa Puerto Escondido heading out

to another diner’s table. In a matter of

minutes, I had my own steaming vessel

of “hidden harbor soup” in front of me

with all its seaworthy mates—tender

cod, mussels, wild prawns, salmon, and

vegetables—in a chipotle-plum, tomatobased

broth. Slightly spicy and hearty but

not too heavy—like it’s French or Italian

cousins can be—it hit the mark.

Finally came the dessert round, and

once again, I eschewed my favorites

(churros and ice cream) and opted for

something I hadn’t tried before, the

Kahlúa cake—a decadent, pyramidshaped

sphere of chocolate ganache

blanketing a velvety treasure of Kahlúainfused

mousse with an espresso dulce de

leche drizzle. “Two forks please,” I said to

my server, “I can’t do this alone!”

Well Folsom, the secret’s out—now go

out and try it for yourself.

“IN A MATTER

OF MINUTES, I

HAD MY OWN

STEAMING

VESSEL OF

‘HIDDEN HARBOR

SOUP’ IN FRONT

Flour Dust Pizza // Pizza is one of the most perfect, mouthwatering meals. But when a chef travels to Italy to learn from

the finest, then opens a catering service and subsequently a restaurant in Roseville, you know you’re getting the best of the best. Flour

Dust Pizza makes their delicious pies with imported “OO” flour and San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, which adds to their authenticity

(and deliciousness). I went with the Terri, which didn’t actually have tomatoes, but didn’t need them either. Smoked salmon, smoked

Gouda, shaved Parmesan, arugula, oven-charred lemons, roasted leeks, and pesto made this pizza original and very, very good. The

flavors complemented each other perfectly, and it was a nice variation from your run-of-the-mill pepperoni. My husband went with

the Kami, featuring spicy feta sauce, fresh mozzarella, house-made Italian sausage, red onion shavings, Parmesan cheese, and a

drizzle of Calabrian pepper purée. They have several other unique pizzas that all sound scrumptious and also serve a Caesar salad (and

a spicy variation of it with fried salami crisps!), a shaved apple salad, and a beet salad, as well as hand-pulled mozzarella, made with

caramelized onions and sweet peppers. No meal is complete without dessert, right? Choose from cannoli, affogato (ice cream, pistachios,

and a shot of espresso) or the magnificent and impressive s’more calzone. It’s big, as good as it sounds, and definitely shareable. I won’t

judge you if you don’t share, though. 5080 Foothills Boulevard, Suite 5, Roseville, 916-773-5080, flourdustpizza.com —Julie Ryan

you covered. Keep reading for everything you need

to make your next open-air occasion a success.

MUST-MAKE Recipes

COMPILED BY MEGAN WISKUS

Impress your pals by making one (or all!) of the following recipes that are

portable, easy to prepare, and best served with sunshine.

Pasta Salad

Recipe by Sonya Keister of The Rustic Fork, Folsom,

therusticfork.com

• 8 oz. (2 cups) elbow macaroni

• ½ cup mayonnaise

• 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

• 1 tsp. Dijon mustard

• ½ tsp. sea salt

• 2 cloves garlic, diced

• 1, 5 oz. package diced pancetta

• *1 small Fresno pepper, diced

• 2 tbsp. olive oil

• 1 cup fava beans** (shelled and

blanched) or edamame

Cook the pasta according to package instructions. While cooking,

whisk the mayonnaise, cheese, mustard, and salt together in

a large bowl. Once the pasta is cooked to al dente, drain and

immediately toss with the mayonnaise mixture. (The noodles will

soak up the mixture better if they’re hot.)

In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, add the olive oil for

about 30 seconds. Add the pancetta and cook low and slow until

crisp and all the fat is rendered. Add in the pepper and garlic, and

cook for 30-60 seconds.

Remove from heat and pour mixture, including the oil, over the pasta.

Fold in the fava beans or edamame and taste for seasoning. Refrigerate

until ready to serve. Note: Salad can be made up to one day ahead of

time to let flavors meld.

*Can be substituted with a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.

**About 1 lb. of fresh fava beans. Remove from their pods then blanch in

simmering water. Drain, cool, and remove the beans from their shells.

Sun’s out buns out! We mean the doughy kind. Looking for the perfect picnic

food? Look no further than the simple sandwich—it’s compact AND packed

LIST with flavor. Take a bite out of some of our favorites below.

Stellar Sandwiches

THE

Hot

By Tara Mendanha and Tara Harbert // Photos by Dante Fontana

Sometimes simple is best, especially when dining al

fresco, which is why our pick of the Chicken Panini

at Bennett’s Kitchen Bar Market in Roseville makes

total sense. This dainty sandwich offers a sweet

and salty medley of tender chicken, apples, Brie,

and caramelized onions on sourdough bread. The

flavors are light on the palate and on the stomach—

leaving you satisfied and ready to take on the day.

bennettskitchen.com

You know that Coffee Republic in Folsom is famed

for their sandwiches, so it comes as no surprise that

they’re on this list. Their Pesto Turkey Melt is perfect

for this weather—not too heavy and just indulgent

enough. Wrapped in their heavenly focaccia bread,

ample turkey and bacon are paired with tomatoes, red

onions, Swiss cheese, and a house-made pesto that’s

par excellence. coffeerepublicfolsom.com

Who doesn’t love a good Pastrami sandwich?

It’s packed with one of the yummiest meats and

is pretty portable. Lucille’s Coffee, Hops & Vine

in Folsom makes a mean one with plenty of meat

that’s held together with peppery horseradish,

white cheddar cheese, pickled onions, and a

creamy dijonnaise on toasted rye sourdough.

lucillescoffeehopsvine.com

Timmy’s Brown Bag Café in Placerville makes their

food an experience. With a menu that changes

daily, you never know what you’ll find. What we can

guarantee are combinations you won’t forget like the

Cajun Fettuccine Alfredo, featuring a Texas kielbasa

in alfredo sauce, buttered bay shrimp with fettuccine,

parmesan crisps, kewpie mayo arugula, and a sweet

Jamaican Pickapeppa sauce on a ciabatta roll.

timmysbrownbag.com

A BLT is always a tried-and-true crowd favorite.

So when we heard that Farmer’s Delicateessen

and Bakery in Cameron Park serves it on their

house-made rosemary focaccia, we had to tell

you about it. Along with their bread upgrade on

this traditional sandwich, it’s stacked with fresh

lettuce and tomato, mayo, and two layers of

applewood-smoked bacon. This BLT is truly GR8.

Where We Live

“I love Folsom’s multitude of outdoor

activities, being a part of the cycling

community, shredding on the local trails,

and capturing images of my friends racing.

Yep, this place is freaking awesome!”
